Apparently, Xian Gaza and Ella Cruz were best friends and business partners.
Ella Cruz was cast to play the role of Irene Marcos in the upcoming film by Darryl Yap called “Maid in Malacañang”. In an interview to promote the film, she said, “History is like tsismis. It is filtered and dagdag na rin, so, hindi natin alam what is the real history. Andoon na iyong idea, pero may mga bias talaga. As long as we’re here alive at may kanya-kanyang opinion, I respect everyone’s opinion.” [Rough translation: History is like gossip. It has been filtered and added, so we don’t know what the real history is. The idea is there, but there really are biases. As long as we are alive and have our own opinions, I respect everyone’s.]

This prompted the “Pambansang Marites” to chime in. In an open letter posted on Facebook, Gaza wrote:
Dear Gabriela,First of all, I miss you. Pangalawa, I respect your opinion. As the “Pambansang Marites” ng Pilipinas, let me educate you sa pagkakaiba ng HISTORY, TSISMIS at HISTORICAL REVISIONISM.
HISTORY — Si Xian Gaza ay business partner ni Ella Cruz, sila ay matalik na magkaibigan. Si Xian ay family friend ng kanyang pamilya. Si Xian ay nabaliw kay Ella, minahal niya ito ng sobra. Palagi silang magkasama from October to December 2016. Nilibre niya ito sa iba’t-ibang restaurant for 3 months at binigyan ng kung anu-anong regalo including iPhone 7 na kulay pink. Nilibre niya din ito ng tandem skydive sa Bantayan Island, Cebu.TSISMIS — Si Xian Gaza ay ex-boyfriend ni Ella Cruz.HISTORICAL REVISIONISM — “Si Xian Gaza ay stalker ng anak ko! Iniscam niya ang buong pamilya namin! May pa-billboard billboard pang nalalaman eh scammer naman!”
See the difference now? With love, XIAN GAZA.
[Rough translation: Dear Gabriela, first of all, I miss you. Second, I respect your opinion. As the “national gossiper” of the Philippines, let me educate you about the difference between HISTORY, GOSSIP, and HISTORICAL REVISIONISM.
Gaza attached a photograph of them together in the post but did not stop there. In another post, he revealed receipts of their travels and his gifts to the actress.
As of writing, Cruz is yet to comment on the matter.
